    This year, we’re going to try something different for the month of August: we’re going to take the month off. Fret not, the site’s not going anywhere bad. But, we think — especially coming off of the vortex that was San Diego Comic-Con — this is a good time for our team to step back, recharge and retool a bit. So we’re going to hit the beach, grab some mojitos, help Arturo celebrate his birthday this Saturday (send well-wishes to him here) and we’ll catch you on the flip side — specifically, Tuesday Sept. 2, with new content and ready to roll…

    A 43-year-old Staten Island Black man, Eric Garner, died after a police officer used a chokehold that is apparently not authorized by the New York Police Department regulations. Persons who witnessed that attempted arrest, along with community leaders believe that the incident is an example of police brutality and racism toward Blacks.   While we never want to use the death of any individual to circumvent the value of human life, the Eric Garner incident provides educators, specifically teachers, an opportunity to reduce the racial tension that exist in classrooms.

    TweetThere are two main challenges in addressing the border issue of increased numbers of undocumented children traveling alone from Central America to the US. The first is that the dehumanization of Latinos in the US has been so tremendously successful that a basic call for decency and humanity is absent from the conversations surrounding this situation. For example, I recently highlighted the issue in an op-ed to a local newspaper and the comments reveal people hiding their racism behind arguments of “legal” and “illegal.” An absence of decency and humanity can also be seen in the…

  • AC Milan doesn't care about racism

    30 Jul 2014 | 9:49 am
    After Carlo Tavecchio's comments comparing Africans to monkeys eating bananas, AC Milan had a chance to make a statement by withdrawing their support. Unsurprisingly, they've decided to stand behind him. In recent years, AC Milan have talked a good talk when it comes to fighting racism in Italy. But it is now both obvious and disheartening to realize that the club has no intention of taking ...

    30 Jul 2014 | 8:03 pm
    I just watched the new StopThinkRespect video, which is the new campaign against racism in Australia by BEYOND BLUE. It is very powerful and I had goose bumps running down my spine, because I have never understood racism and judging people on their appearance, skin colour, culture, religion or language. I believe that most people deserve respect and courtesy. To read that a survey by Beyond Blue shows that one in five non-Indigenous Australians would move away if an Indigenous person sat next to them on public transport is outrageous. Ten percent of those surveyed also stated they would…

    Tonight was a rough night.  Today actually started out amazing!  I got great news – which I will reveal in a later post at some point. But, the day ended horribly!  I feel bad and I don’t feel bad at the same time.  I went to a support group meeting and spent some time talking to a few friends after.  We got into a discussion that just ended with me blowing up.  I majored in sociology and am extremely open minded and liberal.  Anyway, yes, I should have been more open to letting them have their views, but I guess when it comes to social issues regarding race and social…
  • Willfully ignorant leftists put bogus racism charge on John Podhoretz

    Jim Jamitis
    30 Jul 2014 | 7:35 pm
    It was nothing extraordinary. Piano player John Legend was just joining the left wing anti-Israel chorus. Conservative pundit and editor of “Commentary” magazine John Podhoretz responded with a variation on a stock conservative phrase. So naturally the left’s one-track hive-mind decided to accuse Podhoretz of—what else—racism. How original. "Shut up and play the piano" is racist when addressed to a person who plays the piano for a living? There's a new level of derp.— Nathan Wurtzel (@NathanWurtzel) July 31, 2014 "Shut up and sing" is a…

    TweetWhen seeing the dancing “Redskin” Wahoo fan below, many Americans think it’s okay as it’s “just fun,” or it is some kind of twisted way to “honor” Indians, or it’s “only a symbol” not meant to hurt anyone. However, there are real, pernicious effects coming from the public display and theatrical racism of these symbols and “race” costumes and all the antics that are an integral part of their use and history.

    TweetThis time of year, we commemorate the famous speech “The Meaning of July Fourth for the Negro,” written by Frederick Douglass and delivered in Rochester, NY on July 5, 1852. In this famous speech, Douglass says: “What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer; a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sound of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your…
  • George Will, White Elites, Justify Use of “Redskins”

    TweetWhite elites who first developed the terminology of Indians, Savages and Redskins, are now desperately trying to justify that racist language. George Will has been the latest to weigh in on this defense of racial privilege and hegemony, while abusing the English language. In a column titled “The government decided ‘Redskins’ bothers you“,  Will arrogantly dismisses the controversy as the result of “some people” who are “professionally indignant” and chides what he sees as the overreach of government into being coercive “about wedding…
  • Systemic Racism and the Grading of AP Exams

    Tweet Just weeks ago in Salt Lake City the national grading/reading of the Advanced Placement World History Exam became something of a playground for deeply rooted anti-Asian racism thinly veiled as “light-hearted” humor. Did you hear about this? Bet you didn’t. Because barely anybody did. A brave handful of graders who were there protested, but MANY more (graders and non-graders) pushed back with abusive online bullying and what’s-the-big-deal-this-isn’t-even-racist rhetoric. So far only Angry Asian Man and Hyphen Magazine picked up the story. No major networks found it…
